Presented as a digital wallet, the solution allows you to pay for purchases from your smartphone without taking out your credit card or even entering a 16-digit code. Called MasterPass, this solution will first be launched in Australia and Canada as of next March. Next will be the United States, the United Kingdom, then Asia, France, Spain and Italy.

For its part, Visa has already launched a similar solution called V.me. To attract mobile operators and manufacturers, the group recently presented a new program called Visa Ready Partner Program. BPCE should be the first French bank to offer, at the start of the school year, the digital portfolio developed by Visa.
